Rosacea is a common debilitating disorder that effects millions of Canadians today. From simple little "rosey cheeks" to severe full face rosacea, we have what you need to solve your skin issues. Untreated rosacea can lead to rhinophyma (enlarged nose) and severely broken capillaries (telangiectasia) on the nose and cheeks, causing severe facial flushing and cosmetic concerns.

The physicians at The Coliseum MediSpa have clinical evidence and research to support many of our therapies to help you with your rosacea. We offer diet, medications, natural therapies, and laser treatments to treat rosacea. However, first we will assess your skin type, listen and list your concerns, analyze, and begin treatment. We strive to remove the cause of your rosacea. Some common rosacea causing factors include:

Poor diet (food allergies & sensitivities)
Too much alcohol intake
Extreme sun exposure
High stress
Vitamin deficiency
Poor skin genetics
Hormone imbalances (Testosterone, Cortisol, DHEA, Progesterone, & Estrogen)
Poor pH of the skin
Poor digestive function (hyper/hypo stomach acid)
Current bacteria, fungus, yeast infections
Insufficent nutrition & vitamins
Poor stress management (physical & emotional)
Medication induced
Autoimmune disorders
Leaky gut syndrome
Poor overall health status
Environmental chemicals (laundry detergents, chemicals etc.

Usually, our physicians begin with simple to follow medical diet and skin care regimin changes. Occasionally, we start changing around the diet, to figure out what is causing the rosacea to start with. If diet changes are too difficult, we offer laboratory assessments to confirm, then we treat accordingly.

What makes The Coliseum MediSpa unique in treating Rosacea is how we treat the digestive system as well as the skin itself. This is very clinically effective way of treating Rosacea, backed by multitude of research. Even Dr. Oz has talked about treating the digestive system as a means of treating Rosacea!

Our physicians may prescribe medications to help control and treat this condition from progressing. One of our signature Rosacea treatments is IPL facial skin rejuvenation therapy to minimize the redness of the skin. Safe, simple, and cost effective means of controlling the skin's health.

Most people with rosacea require few therapies, few laboratory investigations and a little patience as results sometimes require some time. We very much enjoy treating rosacea at Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care, and we typically see remarkable long lasting results if the patient remains compliant to what we offer.
